"Zeuthen says that while the new storage device handling stack is implemented in Fedora's GNOME 2.26 desktop configuration, it should be appearing in its entirety in the upstream GNOME 2.28 release. The DeviceKit daemon modernizes and adds to many of the features and functions of the tried and true HAL daemon.

"Zeuthen explains some of the goodies present in DeviceKit right now, and gives a few hints at what he hopes the future holds. Better RAID management (as well as LVM and btrfs handling utilities) are in the works, and Fedora users will be among the first to fully experience the improvements in disk status notifications along with reformatting and repartitioning enhancements."
